Nice to know that it worked for you. iBus also need good documentation
and many things changes based on the version, GTK version etc.

Long pending one is to make it ready for users. IMO, varnam-ibus works
really well and I didn't had issues with it so far. We need to cleanup
the `varnamd` integration and make the installation smooth. So that
anyone who needs to use it can use it without any hassle.

So my first plan will be to release a v1. I will create a label in the
repo and add issues under it. Please do the same for all the issues that
you come across.

If you can, I'd also like you to take up and maintain the whole project.
We can get Balu's help in packaging.
